As a rare cancer, osteosarcoma is best treated by a team of specialists who have specific experience in treating this specific condition. At Moffitt Cancer Center, we are Florida’s largest multispecialty medical group dedicated to cancer treatment, and we have helped thousands of patients with osteosarcoma. Our oncologists work together to create an individualized treatment plan for each patient using a multispecialty approach to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.
The osteosarcoma specialists at Moffitt include:
- Diagnostic radiologists and pathologists, who review imaging scans and tissue tests
- Surgeons, who remove cancerous cells from the bones and soft tissues
- Medical oncologists, who use chemotherapy medications to treat cancer
- Radiation oncologists, who treat osteosarcomas with radiation therapy
Each week, our osteosarcoma specialists participate in a collaborative tumor board meeting, where complex cases are presented and potential treatment options are discussed. When it comes to treating osteosarcoma and other rare cancers, multiple expert opinions are always better than one – and that’s precisely the approach we take at Moffitt.
Additionally, we are more than just a comprehensive osteosarcoma treatment center. As a leading research institute, Moffitt is continually investigating new treatment options that have the potential to bring us one step closer to a cure. In recognition of our team’s ongoing osteosarcoma research, we have been named a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute.
